Ezekiel 33:7-11 is the text where God tells Ezekiel that he is appointing Ezekiel as God's "watchman" (or sentinel) over Israel. A word like "watchman" is a hazardous word to mull around and take with you into any and all situations: What am I watching here? What am I missing? Who is watching me? What do others watch about me? What sorts of things do I like to watch? What sorts of things do I hate watching? How alert am I? How easily distracted am I from watching? What's the difference between watching and browsing? How come I like to watch others, but get irritable when others watch me...especially when they point out some of my many faults? What's the difference between watching and criticizing? Where is the good news in the watchman's task?
